    I'm not really one for making guides on the regular so forgive me if its sub-par compared to the rest who make comprehensive guides and such.

    Notes
    • Bring Dual Zelnite leads for maximizing item drop
    • Fujin Pots x5 (A Precaution....I'll explain in a bit)
    • Bring the following units for respective levels
    1. Mitigation/Tridon - Lv. 4
    2. Def Ignore - Lv.3
    3. Status Nullify - Lv.3

    Special Craft-able Spheres
    We have 2 special spheres in store for us! Think of them as Sacred Jewel and Medulla Gem 1.5
    [​IMG]
    Sacred Snowglobe
    Boosts HP and ATK by 15%, DEF and REC by 20% & adds chance of slight HP recovery when damaged.

    [​IMG]
    Frozen Myth
    Boosts HP and ATK a 20%, DEF and REC by 30% & adds chance of BB gauge boost when damaged.

    Required Materials
    Sacred Snowglobe
    Snow Flakes x65
    Snow Crystals x35
    Miracle Frosts x20
    Honor Drops x15

    Frozen Myth
    Sacred Snowglobe x1
    Snow Flakes x70
    Snow Crystals x50
    Snow Gemstones x50
    Miracle Frosts x30​

    [Frost Blitz Lv. 2]

    Pretty straightforward level nothing special to concern yourself with. Single Wendigo for the boss level. One shot and move on to the next level.


    [Frost Blitz Lv. 3]
    The jump in difficulty isn't high if you have the right units. 3 boss units for the last round
    2x frosty
    1x Wendigo​
    • The 2 Frostys only take 1 damage so it's best that you bring a Def Ignore debuff unit. Any will do the job.
    • Frostys have a high chance of paralysis so if you don't have a Def Ignore unit or a Status Nullify unit present expect this fight to last awhile. In the event that you do not bring any of the aforementioned expect to watch your squad get insanely para'd and bit to death by cute little frostys :rofl:
    • Wendigo is pretty much the same as lvl 2. Okay maybe just a tad stronger :rofl:
    [Frost Blitz Lv. 4]
    One mid boss and One final boss
    Mid Boss - Ice Apostle Tiara
    Final Boss - Hrungnir​
    • Nothing special about Tiara. Just one shot her. You'll have 2 rounds to get your BBs/SBBs ready for the final round.
    • Hrungnir was a pleasant surprise.
    • He is Crit resistant. So a Crit squad is out of the question.
    • His 1st turn he will cast White Out. It has the ability to instagem (OTK) your squad unless you have Mitigation or Tridon BB/SBB up. Luckily he only casts this on his first turn. So if you manage to get past it it's smooth sailing from there. If on the off chance that you don't bring either units just Guard. But I would bring a Mitigator just for safe measure.
    • His AOE attack Frost Storm is nothing to worry about. Casted randomly
    • After the 1st turn he will start casting Chill Pill 3 times once per turn. It has the Ability to drain your units BB Gauges to zero. Nada. None. Zilch. Karappo (Japanese for Empty). However he won't use it again after that. No matter what HP you down him to he'll cast it regardless.
    • Should you go the distance, at the 9th turn he'll start casting Snow Burial every turn. This AOE attack does considerable amount of damage so I suggest you Guard or if you have Mitigation and or Tridon have those skills active.
    If you remember my note I did mention that you should bring 5x Fujin pots. Why? Chill Pill is the answer. I recommend that you don't use Fujins during the Chill Pill cycle. Normal attack him for 3 turns then you can burst him down.
    Lv.4 is the only level where you can get Snow Gemstones needed for the Frozen Myth Sphere. So remember, Key units for this level
    • Zelnite
    • Tridon
    • Any Mitigation unit
    • Lilly Matah if you don't have many Fujins
    It is possible to beat Hrungnir without mitigation assuming you have Tridon. But of course not all of us has him so Mitigation will be a must for many. Don't have either? When in doubt, Guard ;)


    Thanks for reading and I hope you have one hell of a grind session for these exclusive spheres :D

    notable units for lvl 4 run ;
    Narza ; because of his SBB and he is Light unit
    Orna ; Thunder element + fast bb fill
    Lodin ; Replacement for Orna
    Zelnite ; well, SBB and LS said all...

    Edit: If you don't have any Mitigation unit, just guard first round and possibly don't bring fire unit

    Note:

    It was on my second turn :confused:

    You don't really need mitigation for Hrungnir. I brought a standard rainbow squad with Michele lead and no mitigation/tridon and she lived through the whole fight. Just guard the first turn. It really doesn't do too much damage. Michele also lived through his AOE BB without guarding. I'd recommend a healer, but you mostly want to burst him down before he can land some nasty chill pills.

    Haha. Well thats unfortunate. I guess that means no matter where his HP is he'll cast it anyway. The more you know.

    Mitigation is just for safe measure.

    Their obtainable on levels 3 and 4

    Someone said they were collectables...But my guess is that they could possibly be evo materials for the 3 christmas units.

    Only this event. On other note, I think you can make more than 1 sphere from this event. The sphere status is not so bad tbh. Much better than Medulla at least, and those BB fill when attack + def/rec 30% good enough for endurance.

    Chill pill seems to be a completely random cast (not related to hp, can start from turn 2 and 90% or anywhere else), and go on for 3 consecutive turns (not always - random?) and then never get used again that fight.

    Yeah I can't seem to figure out any notable pattern....Gonna try to go the distance and see if I can find something.

    Edit: First post updated. Should be accurate now. Chill Pill....Yeah still continues to befuddle me on when he casts it. Seems to be different every time

    • Should you go the distance at maybe the 7th or 8th turn he'll start casting Snow Burial every turn. This AOE attack does considerable amount of damage so I suggest you Guard or if you have Mitigation and or Tridon have those skills active.
    Just run my 3rd tries following ur advice, i notice he cast snow burial at 9th turn.

    Thanks for this guide had been using crit team for first 2 tries XD

    Run lvl using and with great success with the following units

    Leader: Uda (Boost BB Guage)
    Lilith SBB10
    Loch bb10
    Narza SBB10 (damage mitigation)
    Altri SBB10 (Healer)
    Friend: Tridon SBB10 (epic shield)

    Important units here is a damage mitigator/ Tridon to use their bb/sbb alternately especially when turn 9 Starts which is when he will cast Snow burial.
    Fujin is recommended since at my turn 8 he cast Chill pill draining all my BB guage. I had to use fujin for my tridon to cast SBB at turn 9.

    Good luck to all the rest. Merry Christmas!

    This event dissappeared a day early for me! Anyone else have this happen? I already filled a support ticket w/ Gumi.
